DIY glow in the dark pots and planters. Unfortunately, illuminated planters can be quite expensive and not everyone can afford to buy many of them. So, there is an option to decorate your backyard on budget. Just make the glowing at night pot on your own. Get a pot that you like and spray paint it with a glow in the dark paint. The paint will absorb the sunlight during the day and will glow at night, but of course, it will not illuminate the patio entirely.
